Having been off the the bike the last four and a half months due to to family, work commitments, and a very strong case of marshmallow disease, I thought Sunday would be great day to haul my butt off the couch and get back on my bike, plus my wife was having a Tupperware party and I certainly didn't want to be stuck at home  with that happening i throw my bike in the back of the ute and head down to the Stuey O'Grady Bikeway at Waterloo corner. I figured with the northerly blowing i would be…See More

Richard, as for Tweed Ride and viewing of bikes - best is finish at Wheatsheaf Hotel, Thebarton (from approx 3pm), or the start at Adelaide Town Hall.  We're likely to be there half an hour before rolling out.  To see them moving, down near Elder Park (some time between 12.30 and 1) - Darren prefers to keep the route quiet until the day.

I am very tempted, Richard.

No worries Richard-Great bike very similar bike to my avanti Giro with 105 etc. Disappointed about the weather last week. I would of been washed off the bike by the 7am downpoor and working this week. Its so very addictive. Hopefully see the bike and GWs soon.

I cant wait till Saturday, whats the road bike bike details?

Hi Richard, glad all sorted re site. I am considering Hills or Flat on Saturday as well, as I did a 85K ride yesterday. I will decide on the day. Otherwise we can rise together in the hills, after the fisrts 20-25K it becomes a lot easier !!
